Reynard runs away with a stolen dish, mocking his victim who knocks a table over pursuing him
Up jumped the good priest with a scream, and after me tried to pursue,
And the table knocked over with all that was on it to eat and to drink.

Description

Reynard the Fox runs away from a house with a stolen dish of poultry, cheekily turning around to mock his victim who knocks a table over trying to pursue him as the housekeeper throws her arms up in anger and alarm.

The caption reads in the original German:
Hastig wollte der Pfaffe mir nach und lärmte, da stieß er
Über den Haufen den Tisch mit Speisen und allem Getränke.
